>> it is interesting with the president, of course, puttg an op-ein the "washington po." just how conrned is the white house that they are losing the public relations war over this stimulus here we have the president ay, "hold on now. ha some patience, everybody." >> very are concerned. i mean you saw an efft from the left wing of his own party, requests coming for aecond stimulus saying that the fst stimulusid not work in light of the continuous jobless figus that we continue to s month afte month and the trectory of joblessns, we' heading right into 10% unemployment this year and fears it will rise even higher. so upon cas from the progressive wing of his party for unions andsome economists for secondstimulus, rection frther members of his party, the concept of stimulus, we're not going to gothere, these are centrist democrats i his party
who see rising concern public polling aboutdeficits and set and snding and there not going to go ther thepresident knows there's no political will on capitol hi for a second stimulus. he's got startalking up what the first oneis going to do. that'swhy he framing it now a two-year extended program that's not actually the case that they made infebruary when it ssed. they did say it wou prevent unemployme from going pas 5%. it did no they did say t take effect within weeksr ms and it did not. th're actually trying to reframe this debates quickly as they can. >> i think that is a really important point that you pointed ou a.b. the president also saying tay it will ramp up in theummer or the fall, sortf pushing that tim li abo when the american people, when the economy is going to start feeling some of e effects fm thestimulus. politically speaking it gave t republican really the opening they needed or wanted.
want to play what the republic whipric cantor sd in the republican radio response this weekend. lien. >> they promisedou that if you paid for their stmulus, jobs uld be cted immediately. theyromised jobs created. now they scrble to find a way to play gamesith governmen numbers by claiming jobssaved. >> a.b., what about that? did the white house omise to create js or was it crea "and save" jobs? >> it was always "create d save." thoughhe number when we first started talking about stimulus, e transition, between president bush and president obama was somewhere in t $2 million range, then $4 llion, it laned back at 3.5 million. it was always a cbination of create and save. the problem is there is no measurer formulafor measuring sad jobs. we can argue that money from the stimulus programent to states that were cash-strapped, that probably would have laid off public workers.
and it probably did save some jobs in the state. t the white house has putome searier pressure on themselves coming out in early june -- wh the studies were coming about the stimulus only 5% of the money d gone out. now i thinit is12% of the money has gone t. ba in june they said withi 100 days from now wee going to save or create another 6,00 jobs. that date cmes up septemr 16th. now six weeks later mid-july they'rsaying this is a two-year roam. threpublicans are pounding on is and it is poising the well in the health ceebate for democrats, very nervous abt the fact thathey can't spend another trillion on health care, there's too much deficidebt already and that the stimulus is perhaps not working. we may seeome fireworks on rse capitol hill next week. the president' supreme court nomineeonia somayor goes before the senate judicia ittee. we heard from oneof the top reblicans thismorning,

they willoh on everythg and they are hopi to cat her a response that can please their base and raise some money. but in terms of blocking this minee and stoppinger from becoming a justice on the supreme court, none in eith pay thinks that that's possible >> a.b. stoddard with "the hill." thanks, a. >> thanks, norah. a programmingnote -- we it he foe latst on sonia sotomayor'sonfirmation hearings. we'll brg them to you live starting tomorrow. i'll up onapitol hill. that'sight here on msnbc. > and a big birday party for britain's big ben. a celebraon was held in london yesterday. it's onef many events honoring e 150th aiversary of the landmark. the bell first pealed on july 11th, 1859. to stay on top of f ame after 50,

new detalts emerging in the custody fighover michael jackn's three children. people magazine reporting bbie rowe theex-wif and biological mother to 2f micha jackson's 3 chdren is planning to attend a july 20th custody hearin a lawyer f the jackson family yi katherine jackson and rowe are now prify and amicab trying to resol the custody ise. joining me r some perspective, a family law attorney who has covered estate cases tensively, and paul cow a former prosecutor. great to ve you bh. janet, this report 're hearing that debbieowe in fa is going to bhereat this next hearing on ly 20th. what's your read on that? does she really want custody of thkids or ishis about sothing else? >> well, if they're trying to work out a settlemt which is of course in the best interests of these ildren, her appearance is necessary to put th settlement on theecord to
present it to the judgeo have it become bding agreement. >> do you agree, pau >> well, yeah, i do. buthe thing thatreally gets to me on this is where does debb rowe get off saying that she should be a custodial parent in this situation? she said in an interview once these ki should notall her om" because they were michael jackson'kids. she's had no rolin their life. the facthat the court might even consider giving her a parental role i think is shocking. >> if they're already trng to work behind e scenes to work this out, paul, what'soing to happent this july 20th hearinhear hearing? >> i think they'll put a stipulation on record, maybe debbie rowwill back off. she's comento the pcture before for money, then settled and ck away from the children. that's a possility. another possibility is they'll just appear inhe judge and it will be put off uil another date. rember a guardian was go to bepinted to represe the chdren. i haven't hed a lot about that
guardian. that iss might be discussed in court as well. >> janet, on friday we heardoe jackson, of urse michael jackson's ther, talking about the three children and for the first time talking abou how he would be raising them, at least, part. would that affect the case at all? we know -- or at least have heard thatichael jackson did not get away with his fathe very well. there were complicated histor behindthem. >> the factual opening ves debb rowe theopenin to get custody. she's the biological parent so she s the presumption of the best interests of the child in her back pocket. she sits the and shelso sa, i'm going t prott my ildren. she has announced she wld get a restraining order to keep joe jackson away from her cldren so she can prevent the kind of abus jackson apparently did to michael jackson and h siblings she has said want to be able to prote my three children
because kathene didn't a good enough job to protect her own children. that's where she gets the factual piece to give her the right to stay there frontof the judge and say i want my children bac >> it is very weak argument though, norah. beuse joe jackson doesn't live with kherine jackson. katherine ckson's going to come in and say i'm going to be raising these childr, not joe jackson. so it gives her opening to get into court but i don't thi its a stng opening. >> as long herine jks ist confirmg that she's going to let joe jackn have a say in this, that's what you need to look at. if katherine was on "good moing america" saying that, that wou be a huge difference. >> intesting. we'll have much re july 20th at tt hring. thanks so mu. stil ahead -- why investigats say they're close to catching the killer of a orida couple. a lve report our nexhour a lve report our nexhour righhere omsnbc. we' all heard about t tuble in the hohousing industry. the fact is, with allll thek of a nationa real estate market, your town, yououneighbhood, your home, or the home you'd liketo buy, are each uquque.
